I found some news mentions that say:
Cardamom prices shoot up /Commodity Online /
KOCHI: Fall in production and good demand has again added spice to the
cardamom market in Kumily and Tamil Nadu.
According to Sabu George in Rajakumari, a cardamom trader, the Cardamom
Processing and Marketing Company (CPMC) auction at Kumily witnessed a
price increase of Rs 30 a kg from last week’s auction price.
Cardamom prices up
New Delhi, (PTI): Cardamom prices firmed up by Rs 10 per kg in the
wholesale kirana market on Thursday on paucity of ready stocks amid
increased local demand.
Cardamom small Chitridar, colour robin, bold and extra bold hardened to
Rs 430-500, Rs 550-560, Rs 570-580 and Rs 600-620 against previous close
of Rs 420-490, Rs 540-550, Rs 560-570 and Rs 595-615 a kg respectively.
Marketmen said increased demand coupled with restricted supplies mainly
pushed up cardamom prices.
